    Andrea was selected because of her work and the big impact on our Total Trainer program.  Among other things, we appreciate her for:

    • Serving as such an effective “thought leader"--coming up with innovative ideas for enhancing the program, building on the ideas of other teammates, and providing your perspective on things that come up
    • Doing yeoman’s work to design and develop some of the ideas you and the team are coming up with.  For example, creating the testimonial video and designing the night one PowerPoint deck
    • Pitching in as a Facilitator and Assistant Facilitator in addition to all your Project Team responsibilities
    • Jumping in to help so often--sometimes with such short notice--especially given the many commitments of your job and personal life.  Your tireless efforts, together with your upbeat, infectious energy and playfulness make you a joy to work with.
